“Expertly done”

“Constant motion, dancing, including all the DB mannerisms and even The Big Suit!”

“Once in a lifetime experience to hear and feel the theatrical roll out of this amazing tribute”

“Performed with such enthusiasm and musical precision… The stage presence and mannerisms, the stellar vocals… impeccable!”
